Fleet Foxes Debut Performance Video “Crack-Up” at Reykjavik’s Harpa Concert Hall

Today, Fleet Foxes debut a stunning performance of “Crack-Up,” accompanied by the acclaimed Icelandic choir Graduale Nobili, an all-female group of vocalists who have toured the world alongside Björk. The performance was filmed in one extended shot at the famed Harpa Concert Hall in Iceland, just before the band headlined the Iceland Airwaves music festival. In the video, the camera moves from backstage to onstage to the open auditorium, capturing the Fleet Foxes musicians at work, illuminated against the beautiful hall. The video was produced by Consequence of Sound and directed by Eilífur Örn Þrastarson, with creative direction by Kevin McMahon. Full credits are listed below.

Fleet Foxes will begin an extensive run of dates this March, including festival plays at Coachella, Boston Calling and Shaky Knees as well as several headline shows, including two nights at the legendary Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. Amen Dunes will join them for select dates. The full itinerary is below.
